The Cooking School changed my way of thinking for both food and cooking in a more positive way. I learned to appreciate the basic ingredients that go into cooking. Knowing the fundamentals behind the basic ingredients such as herbs, the types of flours, and the types of salts help me better understand how each ingredient contributes to the finished dish. Before, I simply followed the instructions with no idea why I'm doing it, but now I have a better understanding of the culinary reasons behind it.
The Cooking School is designed with the home cook in mind. If you enjoy watching America's Test Kitchen's TV shows, then you would want to join their Cooking School because it's like working with stars on TV. Their step-by-step video and photo instructions really make learning enjoyable. I never felt I was on my own when learning.
I've learned that cooking is a lifelong learning experience. What I'm getting from Cooking School are the skills and knowledge to tackle any recipe I might find. If you're serious about being a better cook, I recommend not having a mindset of being a master chef overnight. Being a good cook takes time.
